I'm outrageously neat and tidy and my work area has to be (almost) surgically clean before I can use the computer. I have a pack of antibacterial wipes in the draw and always wipe everything before and after use.

Not a thread for me I'd wager :D

Maybe this is his 'real working environment'. Mine isn't anything like some of these other desks (some of which I wouldn't even be able to go near, let alone work at). That doesn't mean it isn't real.

This is about as messy as my desk gets. Sometimes there is a couple of pieces of paper their when inputting an invoice, receipt or when filing sales tax. But I push those through immediately and file them to prevent clutter.

Notice the clean socks I have not put on yet, the Allen wrench sitting on my speaker and the Sony remote on the left which is usually on the right.:D

By the way that is not a G4 any longer. But my gaming PC which I modified the cases interior to accept ATX parts:cool:. Eventually I will write a guide as the other guides I have found lacked answers to some of my basic questions for the conversion. Especially how to wire the front panel buttons, unfortunately I damaged the LED light.

I removed the chair back on purpose. It is much more comfortable now that I can sit cross legged on my chair.

I love the idea of this thread as I dont buy for a second that people's setup's are as clean and spiffy as most people's are in the other thread. If they are then I think its safe to say that Apple users are far more anal than PC users, lol. Anyways I had previously posted these in that thread but they certainly belong in here much more than in there.

As I explained in that previous post, we are buliding an addition on our home that will eventually become my new computer room/office/photo studio and I had to move my computer set up into one of our storage rooms until it is finished. It was much cleaner than this when I first set it up but it has just degraded as time has gone on as I just have no room for anything. The good news is the addition on our home is in the final stages and I wont have to stay in here for much longer. My new computer room is going to be a 1000 times better and 10 times bigger.

Believe me, its much worse than it looks, lol. You cant even see my printers or my Lacie Raid as they are buried under boxes.

he's getting his office extended so he had to move everything to a smaller room.

why bother spending time organizing everything if he's just gonna move it to a bigger permanent office?

But yeah this desk is nice and open compared to the built-in recessed desks in the dorms. Which is y i am just now getting my LED display (i just moved in here a week ago)

Oh, that makes sense then. I live in the dorms but my desk isn't the typical built-in recessed type. Everything in my room (i.e. bed, desk and closet) are movable so that makes things easier. I really just envy the pull-out part of your desk and the overall look. Ahhh well, I graduate Spring 2010 so this is only temporary :)

Nope, commercial / editorial photographer.

They're M-Audio BX5's, and that's actually a 4 bay, hot-swappable, e-Sata enclosure.

Been working on Organic Chemistry(the big book) and about to have to start on American Literature (book on the far right)

Got the 20" Dell which is currently connected only to my PS3. And I am going to buy a 24" LED Cinema Display tomorrow to use with my UMBP. I don't like the quality of that particular Dell monitor because it looks like crap sitting next to my UMBP. Henceforth I am going to get the LED display.

I will take another pic tomorrow and post it after I get my LED Cinema Display set up.

Other than that this is how my desk normally looks.

Man I hated Organic Chem 1 and 2. At least your'e studying it!

I love the idea of this thread as I dont buy for a second that people's setup's are as clean and spiffy as most people's are in the other thread. If they are then I think its safe to say that Apple users are far more anal than PC users, lol. Anyways I had previously posted these in that thread but they certainly belong in here much more than in there.

As I explained in that previous post, we are buliding an addition on our home that will eventually become my new computer room/office/photo studio and I had to move my computer set up into one of our storage rooms until it is finished. It was much cleaner than this when I first set it up but it has just degraded as time has gone on as I just have no room for anything. The good news is the addition on our home is in the final stages and I wont have to stay in here for much longer. My new computer room is going to be a 1000 times better and 10 times bigger.

Believe me, its much worse than it looks, lol. You cant even see my printers or my Lacie Raid as they are buried under boxes.

Usually, it's pretty safe, as is the threat of thrashing the motherboard. The main thing that poses the greatest danger is opening up old CRT monitors. It's also not a good idea to take apart a power supply. If one of those goes, just get a new one.

For the most part, many people lose stuff if the parts (RAM, processors, video cards, but usually standoffs/screws) are not all accounted for if the machine is kept disassembled too long. It's hard to complete lose a whole motherboard or hard drive but some people make me wonder.

Nah dude, it's a good way to test all the components while building the system. Also if you're running a mad set-up in a case way to small for it all (http://i700.photobucket.com/albums/ww5/manitoublack/Top_down.jpg) (eg: my home setup) (http://i700.photobucket.com/albums/ww5/manitoublack/Proof_shot.jpg) it's a good way to let things vent, while testing overclocks.

True, but you can be fairly safe taking apart a power supply if you take the correct precautions, like I did when I removed the LEDs from my PSUs fans(blue will not go with my white lighting and red tubing!).

if you think the risk of losing standoffs is bad, my whole case is disassembled at the moment, awaiting my dremel and possibly some paint for a nice black on red paint job:p

The old Macbook Pro is so ugly compared to the unibody, i am really looking forward to a quad core MBP with a 30" Apple screen, i wont update until then but it is hard to wait!

Really?!? I think the old MBPs are SO much nicer looking. The UBs just don't seem as well thought out to me. Like the way the keyboard and speakers line up, and the power button. They all just seem to 'be there' where as on the old ones, everything made sense and was very elegant. Just my opinion though.

A plastic strip is not a deal killer for an overall attractive machine.

I have been contemplating about upgrading my classic MBP - but I can't seem to let it go. It does look classy - the new macbook pro looks just like the macbooks = kind of boring and not unique anymore. The looks of the classic had some kind of distinction. That and I am afraid of those black keys - those things will get oiled up in no time.

I love the idea of this thread as I dont buy for a second that people's setup's are as clean and spiffy as most people's are in the other thread. If they are then I think its safe to say that Apple users are far more anal than PC users, lol. Anyways I had previously posted these in that thread but they certainly belong in here much more than in there.

As I explained in that previous post, we are buliding an addition on our home that will eventually become my new computer room/office/photo studio and I had to move my computer set up into one of our storage rooms until it is finished. It was much cleaner than this when I first set it up but it has just degraded as time has gone on as I just have no room for anything. The good news is the addition on our home is in the final stages and I wont have to stay in here for much longer. My new computer room is going to be a 1000 times better and 10 times bigger.

Believe me, its much worse than it looks, lol. You cant even see my printers or my Lacie Raid as they are buried under boxes.

I actually just cleaned my desk earlier this week, and added some shelves to get rid of some clutter. So this setup is probably a lie compared to what I'm used to. :p Also excuse the photomerge, I couldn't back up far enough to get a full shot.

I actually chose this small cubicle over a much larger one with a window. Problem was my back was always facing the entrance so I chose privacy over comfort.

Just out of curiosity, did you buy the Cinema Displays with the mini, or did you have them before? I couldn't imagine spending more on the screen(s) then I did on the computer.

We have had them. I was using a crappy 19" Gateway LCD with a Gateway tower (which was good, 2.4GHz Core2Duo, 4GB RAM) until I got fed up and swapped it for the old PowerMac G5 and a single cinema display. Then I searched around the university until I found another cinema display and grabbed it for my desk :)

I do love the setup though. Cinema displays + the Mini are better than having a iMac in my opinion. I realize you can hook another display up to an iMac, but having uniform screens when doing dual displays is a major must for me.

I mostly do programming at work, and the 2.0GHz, 4GB RAM combo is just fine. Heck the G5 held up pretty well for its age. If I ever have any compilation that needs to be done, we have workhorse servers. But really, the 2.0 Mini holds up well, and looks good on my desk between the cinema displays.

I have the same mini at home and it runs great for everything I toss at it, well worth the money. But I saved money upgrading the RAM and HD on my personal mini myself. I figured since my employer was buying this one, I would configure it with the extra spec's directly from Apple. It costs more than doing it yourself, sure, but I don't want to crack open and risk voiding the warranty on my work computer.

ahh yea, for programming its pretty much the perfect machine! small, quiet, and tidy (for all the crap on your desk :p). the performance of it is probably better then the old G5 you were using :)

question about drums

Not really. Honest. I've longed for an electronic kit for ages and have used a Roland TD-7 a bit. I've used the mesh kit at Guitar Center and there is a noticeable difference. I read up and the mesh will be better if you play them a lot because there is NO give on the regular pads. You really need the mesh pads to preserve your wrists and shoulders imho.

The mesh pads add at least a few hundred over the thousand ++ you can spend on a Roland kit. I'd be happy with an older TD-7 but the TD-9 is amazing and I think comes with mesh pads.

Electric kits don't have to be synthetic. You can program a roland machine and I've seen them come REAL close to an actual kit. Actually Def Leppard's drummer will use a kit often because he only has one arm.

i have played a few gigs using my drum teachers Roland something something (dont recall what it is, but its VERY old). it doesnt have the mesh pads (he has mesh practice pads-they are a bit better), compared to a real kit its very fake. the sound might be fine, but compared to a real kit you just dont get the 'feel' of it - ESPECIALLY on the cymbals, hitting a pad just doesnt resemble a real cymbal, you dont get it 'flapping' around (you really have to concentrate to hit it in the right spot when that is happening haha)..

they are pretty nifty though, but too expensive for me :(

is your stuff mic'ed up?
yes, but not very much - they do make a nice sound though.
1x$10 mic in kick
1x$50 mic "over head" the right hand side of the kit
1x$50 mic "over head" the left hand side of the kit.

it sounds pretty decent, once i put these videos together ill link you to them.. hopefully they turn out ok.

ya way diff. especially the mesh ones. they are insanely bouncy
oh my yes! its like playing on a trampoline! kinda of a cheaty way..

ha ya. hybrid rudiments baby. dude learn some funk, thats what im doing right now, wow hard.
eheh, funk is what i do best!! :D ;) i got inspired by the Chili Peppers, Chad Smith is probably the drummer i sound most like..

im a very "beaty" person, i dont play "hard" stuff but i play good to listen stuff..

or you could try and play anything by meshuggah. its sounds easy, but its more messed up to play than dream theater. there beats are like dream theater where they say "hey lets do one measure of 4/4 then 1 measure 7/3 than 9/4 and 4/3 now reapeat" except no one says anything about time signatures or length.
heard a few songs, sounds tough. dream theater is pretty ok, i can play one or two songs (havent tried that hard).

the videos i recorded today are for a uni friend, the three songs use the following time signatures: 4/4, 3/4, 7/8 and 6/8. it keeps changing, its awsome fun to play (i have made it somewhat simple as the drums do not "major" in the songs :D)


anyway, back to the original topic.
i go back to school in a week.
ill deff post a pic of my work environment, its laughable at best.

i changed around my desk last night, ill post some pictures later 2morrow :D

I love the mount risers.

Got to do what needs to be done :) Monitors are too low on top of the desk, and even a bit low on the drives. Maybe I will add another optical drive under each one, who knows.

Thats what I used to do but I could never find the right combination of books for each monitor so they were exactly the same height. I am OCD about that kind of stuff. Uneven monitors drive me nuts.

lol OCD. i have a 17" CRT combined with a 19" LCD, but somehow i found the perfect combination of books! -- it was a database book & discrete maths book on one, a dictionary and some random book on the other. they literally line up perfectly!

pictures 2morrow :p

Well, it doesn't look terribly messy compared to a lot of other desks, but here's what my desk at work looked like a few months back. Meant to post this sooner, but I couldn't remember what computer I had saved the file to. :rolleyes:

you guys need to get the ergotron lx desk mount.
its 100 bucks but its amazing.

i posted a pic of my setup a while ago with like 4 text books with a piece of wood on top all taped together and i thought that thing was great. it was really a joke.

I thought my room was a mess from packing for school, but you've beaten me by a long shot.

get an electric kit! they cost a bit more, and are a different experience to an acoustic kit - but are really quiet!
Not a bad idea. Ironically, I do have an old Roland R8 drum machine around here somewhere. I used to enjoy trying to play drums by just tapping the pads on it.

Anyway, cool that you're into recording. It'd be awesome to hear your stuff. I've always enjoyed attempting to record music myself, even if I can't really play it.

what are you editing/ recording with

FCP.

two streams
stream 1: DV camcorder, 25fps, 44.1KHz
stream 2. MBP using QT on "RAW" @ 44.1KHz

audio recorded in QT with stream2.

listened to mp3 version of the song.

on both streams the audio of the actual song will go out of sync with the drums. i have no idea why. i have to change the length of the recording using Audacity (doesnt always work though) but there HAS to be an easier way!!

any ideas?
